Bed Buddy Report |Findings |
Nest Bedding is one of the first direct-to-consumer companies to sell bed-in-a-box mattresses. With a lineup of six different beds, Nest mattresses are made with every different sleeper in mind.
The Blended Latex Mattress is available in three firmness options. The ‘Soft w/topper’ option features a comfort layer made of soft Dunlop latex, as well as a three-inch Dunlop latex topper. This option is more expensive due to the addition of the topper. The ‘Medium’ and ‘Firm’ options forgo the topper; the ‘Medium’ has a soft Dunlop latex comfort layer and a firm Dunlop latex support core, while the ‘Firm’ has a firm Dunlop latex comfort layer and a soft Dunlop latex support core.
All of their models are available in multiple comfort (firmness) options, and with two memory foam beds, three hybrid builds, and one latex, you’ll be able to find the feel and support that works best for you. So, no matter if you’re lighter, heavier, sleep on your side, or you deal with chronic pain, Nest can fit your preferences on at least one of their beds.
What Type of Sleeper Is Best Suited for a Nest Bedding Mattress?
Based on my customer feedback, Nest Bedding mattresses have received the following grades among sleepers of different weights and preferred sleep positions. Please note that these ratings are subjective and that everyone has varying experiences on different mattresses. Sleeper comfort and spinal support are the most important factors when it comes to selecting a mattress.
For more information on sleeping positions please see my guides for side, back, stomach and combination sleepers.
Our testing process found the Nest Bedding Mattress should also be great for you if…
- You share a bed with a partner but don’t want to feel them move around at night.
- You want a mattress that contours to curves and eliminates pressure in your shoulders, hips, and lower back.
